Description                           Estimate: $400+          

Scottish chemist and inventor of waterproof fabrics (1766–1843) for whom the Mackintosh raincoat is named. ALS, one page both sides, 5 x 8, December 28, 1836. Letter to a reverend, in part: “I am very curious of hearing how the Duke of Montrose is and shall be obliged by your informing me. I would have done myself the pleasure of calling upon you to learn this; but have been confined for the past fortnight with rather an alarming attack from the rupture, I believe of a small artery in the lungs. We have got it soldered up however, but I am left weak from very copious bleeding.” In fine condition, with a few areas of toning, and writing showing through from opposing sides. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
